FAQ – Alkaline Ionized Water

 

Q. Why should I drink alkaline ionized water?

Alkaline ionized water gives you an abundance of anti-oxidants to reduce cell damages and helps to restore your pH balance in your body.

It also contains an abundance of ionic minerals, such as Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Sodium that are essential for cellular functions. The water is high in oxygen and as well as a powerful solvent to neutralize uric acids, cholesterol and acidic toxic wastes and flushes them out from the body. It hydrates your body 3 times more than any water and also helps to restore your body pH balance and gives you plenty of energy!

Q. How much alkaline ionized water should I drink every day?

Normally, the health experts recommend that it is beneficial to drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water per day or 30 to 40 cc per body weight per day. If you are not used to drinking a lot of water, start out by drinking alkaline ionized water at level 1 and gradually increase your water intake to 8-12 glasses per day (2 to 3 litres).

Q. What pH level should I select on my ionizer when I start drinking alkaline ionized water?

Start out gradually by drinking water at Level 1 (pH 8) for the first week. If the water agrees with you, move up to Level 2 (pH 9.0 to 9.5) during the second week, and then to Level 3 (pH 9.5) in the third week. Once you comfortable with the taste, you can move on to Level 4 (pH 10)

For maximum health benefits, we adjust drinking the highest level you are comfortable with as level 4 is still within safe pH drinking range.

Q. Are there any side effects related to drinking alkaline ionized water?

When you start drinking alkaline ionized water, you should not experience any side effect if you are healthy. If there are any symptoms such as joint pain, body or muscle ache, burping or flatulence and other mild symptoms, your body is having too many acid toxins. These after effects are good signs, as they are directly related to the detoxification that your body is undergoing as the micro-clustered water penetrates deep into your tissues and expels acid waste and toxins that have accumulated in your body over time. The after effects will subside once your body has become accustomed to the water, anywhere from 2-3 days to a week, depending on each individual and the level of detoxification that the body needs to undergo.

Q. Who should drink alkaline ionized water?

Everyone, young and old, pets and animals, can drink alkaline ionized water. It is safe for baby as well. The tremendous amount of oxygen in the water helps the baby’s body function efficiently. Treat it as your normal drinking water. The only difference is that this water helps to hydrate your body faster and gives you many health benefits and plenty of energy!

Q. How should I start drinking it?

We recommend that you start at Level 1 for about 2-4 weeks and gradually increase to Level 2, 3 or 4 according to your desire and health condition. The strength of the alkaline / acidic water is stronger at the higher level. The antioxidant is most powerful on the higher levels as well. Detoxification can be STRONG at higher levels. Take your time to increase the strength gradually according to individual preference and health condition.

Q. What do I expect after starting to drink alkaline ionized water?

It is possible that you will notice differences in bowel habits during the first few days at any level. Urine frequency may increase and colour may darken as more water is consumed and impurities discharge from the body. If you have gastric or indigestion problems, you might encounter “bloated feeling” or “burp” frequently. You might want to go slower during the first few days and increase your intake gradually if the discomfort bothers you.

For those who have liver problems or on long-term medication, you might experience some skin rashes or outbreak. You might also encounter diarrhoea during the first few days of drinking if you have serious constipation or abnormal fermentation in the intestine. This is the cleansing process and once it is over, you will feel better.

The aforesaid are just some of the detoxification processes you might experience during the initial period. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact sales team if you need further assistance and advice.

Q. Are there any side effects of drinking alkaline ionized water at high pH11 and above?

Japan Water Electrolyzer for Home Use (domestic water ionizer) Standard JIST 2004 does not advise to drink alkaline ionized water above pH11. All domestic water ionizer manufactured in Japan and Korea need to comply with this standard.

No chemical enhancer is supposed to be added to the machine to raise the pH level to 11 and above for consumer consumption.

Normally, high alkaline or acidic pH are made for industrial/commercial applications.

Q. When will I begin noticing the health benefits?

Each person is different, and as such, the body’s response to drinking alkaline ionized water varies from person to person. You might start noticing a positive response in as little as one day or within a few weeks.

Q. Should I drink alkaline ionized water with meals?

It is not encouraged to drink alkaline ionized water immediately after meals as our stomach needs acid to digest meats. You should take alkaline ionized water 30 minutes before and after meals. It is best to take alkaline ionized water 30 minutes before meals so as to stimulate the secretion of gastric juice for better digestion.

Q. Can I use alkaline ionized water to take my medication?

It is recommended to refrain from drinking alkaline ionized water during medication and to wait at least 30 minutes after medication before consuming alkaline water. The smaller cluster size of the alkaline ionized water makes the water penetrate the cells in our body much more quickly, and it is best not to interfere with the prescribed absorption rate of the medication. You can, however, drink the pure filtered water (pH 7) from the ionizer with your medication.

Q. When is the best time to drink alkaline ionized water?

Have your first glass of the day right when you get out of bed. The water absorbs best into the system when your stomach is empty. Then you should continue to drink alkaline ionized water throughout the day.

Q. Does alkaline ionized water taste different?

Yes. Water that enters the ionizers first goes through a filter that removes the taste and odour of chlorine contained in municipal tap water. Then electrolysis breaks down the size of the water clusters, from 12-16 molecules to micro-clusters of 5-8 molecules. This makes the water taste smoother and silkier. Alkaline ionized water tastes great, and makes better tasting coffee, tea and juice. It is also wonderful to cook with it because it helps to penetrate the food and bring out its flavour.

Q. Is alkaline ionized water good for athletes?

Absolutely! Proper hydration sustains the body’s physiological responses in all activities, but the physical and mental stresses of athletic training and competition magnify the importance of hydration. Numerous studies conducted on athletes since the 1940s have demonstrated that even mild dehydration impairs performance. Alkaline ionized water is micro-clustered, so it can be absorbed at a faster rate, helping with rehydration of the body’s tissues. Furthermore, blood oxygen levels increase with regular use of alkaline ionized water providing the muscles tissue and organs with high amounts of oxygen and improving stamina and endurance. Water that has been alkalized also helps to neutralize exercise induced lactic acid build up in the muscles, and improves recovery time.

Q. Can I give alkaline ionized water to my pets?

Absolutely. As with humans, pets will also benefit from the improved hydration, antioxidants and higher pH values of alkaline ionized water. You may find that animals will be more energized and with less odour when they start drinking alkaline water.

Q. Can a person become too alkaline from drinking alkaline ionized water?

No. Some people have been known to drink 4 or more litres of alkaline ionized water every day and gotten great benefits from it. On the contrary, one of the most common imbalances people have today that leads to health problems is that they are too acidic. The more acidic we are, the greater the chances of illness taking hold in our body. In fact, it is rare or not known for a person to acquire alkalosis or, the condition of being too alkaline. To maintain optimal health we should maintain a balanced pH diet that includes alkaline ionized water and alkaline foods such as fruits and vegetables.

Q. How do I know if I am out of pH balance?

Several external signs can show that one’s body is too acidic. Some examples include an unexplained rash, acne, dark circles under the eyes, cracked skin and nails, brittle hair, and excess weight. Other signs include stomach upset and indigestion, confusion, anger, or irritability, food sensitivity and allergic reactions, recurrent infections, fatigue, and even depression. When one improves the body’s pH balance through an alkaline diet, including plentiful fresh, raw alkaline foods and alkaline ionized water, the body’s natural defence mechanisms are able to function properly and fight off illness and disease and naturally restore optimal health conditions.

Q. How long can I store the alkaline ionized water?

For best effect, try to drink directly from the machine. However, if you need to store the water, try to collect the water daily to maximize the benefits derived from the alkaline ionized water. There is no harm storing the water for many days. Treat it like what you do for your normal water.

Q. What is the best way to store alkaline ionized water?

We recommend usage of capped plastic or glass bottles. Always rinse your container with acidic water to disinfect the bottles before storing the water. This is hygienic and helps to restore the molecular structure and pH better. After some time, if you find some flakes deposit at the side of your bottles, please do not worry. They are calcium flakes. You can either soak the container with Acidic water or vinegar to remove them.

Q. How does Water Ionizer compared to Reverse Osmosis, Distillers and other Filtering or Energizing Water available in the market?

Distillation is the process in which water is boiled, evaporated and the vapor condensed. Reverse Osmosis uses membranes in its system. Both systems remove all dissolved minerals and produces pure water that tends to be acidic. Pure water does not have electrolytes that are important for cellular functions. Prolonged drinking of these 2 types of water leach mineral salts from the body and eventually develops multiple mineral deficiencies. Cooking foods in pure water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value. Carbon Filters or Energizing Water Filters are basically water filters. Some systems come with few types of cartridges. Filters cannot kill bacteria or viruses so it is recommended that you boil the water before drinking. Point to note: Filter cannot perform ionization and it cannot split tap water into alkaline ionized minerals and acidic ionized minerals. The Ideal Water for the human body should contain essential minerals and electrolytes that are vital for cellular functions. Water Ionizer can offer that and much more such as Antioxidant properties, smaller water cluster and plenty of oxygen to energize you and flushes acidic toxins out from your body. Alkaline Ionized Water is approved by the Ministry of Health and Welfare Japan and Korea as a Health Advancement Device since 1960’s and 1970’s respectively. To-date the approval still stands and there have been no reported side effects so far. No water system in the markets today can give you this assurance.

Q. What is the acidic water good for?

The acidic water is super-oxidation water. It kills bacteria and viruses on contact. It helps to heal skin diseases such as Eczema, Hong Kong Foot, Wounds, Cuts, etc. And for any sterilization purpose. With a mild pH that is close to the skin, it is very effective as a skin toner and also for hair conditioning. Regular usage improves skin texture and also stops dandruff.
